Princess Genevieve begs her father to let her lead the kingdom, but the king decides to hold a contest to find the next king. Outraged that she has been reduced to a trophy for the winner, Genevieve comes up with a plan to enter the contest herself.
An original fairytale filled with mistaken identities, tongue-in-cheek humor, and over-the-top characters, The Princess King will be rehearsed and performed from home from via password protected Zoom video conferencing. Using a blend of foundational acting techniques and technological advantages, students will experiment with character development, stage presence, and improvisation.
Family and friends will be able to attend a live performance via Zoom on the final day, Friday, July 17, at 7:00 p.m. This performance will be recorded and made available on The Phipps Center’s website for later viewing.
